Mazama climb. Partly cloudy to start and then we were chased off the summit by an oncoming thunderstorm. Group after group going up didn't listen or care about what was coming. By the time we descended to the upper basin at 9,000ft., high winds and ice were slamming us. Weather aside, the climb was easier and more fun than I expected.
Did this route on July 15th and again on July 29th, and it is amazing to see the changes in the route only two weeks. Alot more open crevasses, but overall, route was in great shape.
Easton Glacier strike out. thick fog for days!
Summit Lenticular on Saturday, fog, drizzle on Sunday, but climbed out of the bad weather to a sunny, windy summit with family and friends. Mt. Baker is never boring! Nice climb again!
Beautiful weather; calm, clear, and warm. One of our rope members took a summit poo, while a friendly Canadian let me have a go flying his kite on the summit.
A very committing line with about 600 of 80 degree ice climbing one on the ridge it rained the whole time we were there and made summit day hair with zero visibility
Excellent weather caused us to set up a low camp at 5900' along the railroad grade, and ascend the Easton in warm sunshine. We left camp at 1:30pm and returned at 11:00pm. Even on such a nice day, we needed crampons from the crater on, and the summit was windy and cold.
Climbed with Brian F and Mark S. Lucky hole in the wheather. Northern lights were brilliant as we weaved through the crevasses. A fantastic climb and alone on the summit.
Climbed above and inside the glacier as part of a mountaineering course through my college. The mountain was beautiful, weather perfect, and route challenging, but not too difficult.
Clear skies, but incredibly windy at the top. It was about 25 degrees with 50 mph wind gusts. We spent about 45 minutes on the summit, had a few snacks, ate a watermelon and then headed down.
climbed the coleman glacier route in 2005. quite lovely. we got up there just before the bergschrunt near the shaddle gave way and made the route much more difficult
Nice hike up the Railroad Grade in good weather. Summit day started out nice, then we watched a storm system come in during our descent. Moved camp from up on the glacier down to the main high camp area. Enjoyed the sound of rain pounding on the tents while sippin a bit of whiskey. Always spend an extra day out if you can!
Great weather. Snow was firm enough up high. The Roman Wall was essentially like walking up a staircase from multiple parties bootprints from the day before. Incredible views.
No dice on Father's Day weekend. Whiteout conditions kept us cozy in our tent rather than attempt the summit. Gotta go back!
Headed up on a clear day. Went from a beautiful day to full whiteout and weather by the next morning. Was lucky enough to get views for the first few hours. I imagine if needed you could follow the SkiDoo tracks up most of the way...just follow the beer cans
The weather that week was perfect. Blue skies with white puffy clouds and very little wind. Baker is awesome, I can't wait to go back.
This has got to be one of the coolest peaks I've done. Got lucky with a weather window on day 3. Punched through one snowbridge on the Coleman, snow conditions were excellent on the way up and slushy on the way down.
Only 50' visibility at times, broke from clouds at 7000' into beautiful clear day. Bitter cold fierce wind blowing on top, stayed on top for about 2 minutes! Temperature varied from 20 degrees on top to over 70 at around 7000'! Punched through a hidden crevasse on the descent. Lots of snowmobiles on the first day, none on the second.
Fun day out with friends. Nervous moment when Euro-skier was ascending the steeper portion on skins, decided to use our rope as a temporary handline. Enjoyed route more than Easton Glacier which I did two years prior.
